A Second Chance: The Story of a

Near-Death Experience

The amazing narrative of Ajamila's transforming near-death experience is

chronicled in Srimad-Bhagavatam. In this book based on that narrative,

Srila Prabhupada shows us how we can employ the techniques of mantra

meditation and bhakti-yoga to overcome the obstacles of materialism,

meet the challenge of death, and ultimately attain spiritual perfection.

Beyond Birth and Death

Is there life after death? Srila Prabhupada tells how the soul travels

from body to body, and how we can end the cycle of birth and death by

reaching Lord Sri Krishna's ultimate abode. An excerpt: "The simple

process of chanting the names of Krsna will reveal what one is,

what God is, what the material and spiritual universes are, why

we are conditioned, how we can get out of that conditioning -

and everything else, step by step."

Civilization and Transcendence

In this small book Srila Prabhupada addresses the fallacies of our modern

so-called advanced civilization. After pointing out that today the vast

majority of people do not know what real progress is, he explains that

in the Vedic civilization people strive not for the false progress of

economic development but rather for the true advancement of self-

realization and God realization.

journey, at the speed of mind, to antimaterial planets far beyond the

limits of the material universe. Encompassing the systems of sankhya,

astanga and bhakti, this absorbing publication treats the science of

yoga, particularly in its application to out-of-body travel.

Krsna Consciousness:

The Topmost Yoga System

Again the topmost yogi of the modern age, Srila Prabhupada, expounds

on the supreme yoga, Krsna consciousness. A sample: "Chanting the

Hare Krsna mantra is not merely the process of putting an end to

the false conception of the self, but it goes beyond that, to the

point where the pure spirit soul engages in his eternal, blissful,

all-knowing activities in the loving service of God. This is

the height of conscious development."

Life Comes from Life

This book is based on taped morning-walk conversations that

Srila Prabhupada had with some of his disciples during 1973,

in the Los Angeles area. On those mornings when he focused

on science, Srila Prabhupada spoke mainly with his disciple

Thoudam D. Singh, Ph.D. An organic chemist, Dr. Singh

presently directs the Bhaktivedanta Institute, an

international center for advanced study and

research in science, philosophy and theology.

Light of the Bhagavata

The simplicity, beauty and intricacies found in nature have

captured the minds and hearts of the greatest philosophers

throughout time. Even the greatest scientific minds of our

time are at a loss to understand nature's greatest mysteries.

Light of the Bhagavata presents a clear and tangible

illustration of the purpose and significance of

nature and it's origin.

The saintly king Kulasekhara lived more than a millennium ago

in India, yet his Mukunda-mala- stotra speaks to us today with

the fresh voice of truth. It is the voice of a realized soul

beseeching the Lord - and us - with the utmost sincerity.

He calls to all people to hear of the treatment for the

disease of birth and death.

On the Way to Krsna

Every one of us is searching after happiness, but we do not know

what real happiness is. We see so much advertised about happiness,

but practically speaking we see so few happy people. This is

because so few people know that the platform of real happiness

is beyond temporary things. It is this real happiness that is

described in Bhagavad-gita by Lord Krishna to Arjuna.

Sri Caitanya-caritamrita

Adi-lila | Madhya-lila | Antya-lila (word)
Adi-lila | Madhya-lila | Antya-lila (pdf)

Sri Caitanya-caritamrta was written by Krishnadasa Kaviraja Goswami.

This book contains the unabridged original Bengali text, Roman

transliterations, synonyms, translation and elaborate purports

by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. This

is the definitive history and biography of Sri Krishna Caitanya.

Here is a description of Sri Caitanya's life and teachings.

Sri Caitanya pioneered a great social and spiritual movement in

India over five hundred years ago, which today continues to spread

its profound influence worldwide. While man in the West was exploring

outward in the physical universe, in India Sri Krishna Caitanya was

exploring inward, exhibiting unparalleled spiritual potency, and

discovering the truths of consciousness and transcendental reality.

As a young boy he overwhelmed astounded scholars, establishing his

own school at the age of sixteen. Within his lifetime, Sri Caitanya

transformed India in four respects: philosophically, by defeating

the greatest philosophers of his day; socially, by opposing the

blindly rigid caste system; politically, by organizing India's

first civil disobedience movement against repression by the

Mohammedan government; and spiritually, by freely distributing

nonsectarian love of God. Sri Caitanya-caritamrta presents Sri

Caitanya as the Golden Avatar, the incarnation of Krishna in

this age in the form of His devotee.

Sri Isopanishad

We rebel at modern science's contention that we can be analyzed

into lifeless laws and particles.We feel that personality is the

solid foundation and unifying principle of our existence. That

intuition is correct, says the Vedic philosophy of ancient India,

which loudly proclaims the primacy of personality in every sphere

of life and knowledge. And the essential Vedic teachings on the

universal nature of personality are summarized in Sri Isopanisad,

the foremost of the 108 Upanisads.

authoritative exposition of Vedic knowledge covering everything

from the nature of the self to the origin of the universe. Read
